Sailing in the Light


We were walking along the promenade and the little yacht was doing its thing.  I’d taken a few photographs of it, but how many do you need?   Anyway, we just turned to return to the car, when I noticed the little boat had sailed into a spot of sunshine – not only that but the sunlight was shining through the sail, making it glow against the dark background.  I can tell you it was a bit of a panic to get my camera sorted – so much so that I only got one shot to show what I wanted.  My family wondered what all the fuss was about – but when you see something that inspires you to photograph it …. no matter what the outcome might be, it’s better to try for it than to walk away telling yourself it’s not worth the effort!
